our story – our wine:

Shawn and Vivien met in 2007, they really did not know much about wine, or why people pay thousands of dollars for a bottle.

They didn’t understand “How you can find a great bottle of wine of high quality but reasonably priced?”

With that goal they started their wine education journey by visiting and tasting various  AVA locations in the North coast, Central coast, and Southern California areas. They drove all over California in search of the right understanding. Along the way Shawn & Vivien did various wine tastings in Monterey county, San Luis Obispso and Paso Robles areas, Sonoma county , and of course where they settled in their hearts on wine – Napa Valley.
